A Quiet Morning

Today is one of those days at work, when it truly feels like you are the only one in the office. Over the weekend, my co-workers successfully completed another step in our hardware consolidation plan, and thankfully things were working as we had hoped that they would. Most of the team was either at the location of the consolidated site to help with incidental bugs, or were taking part of the day off as comp time for weekend work. Quiet in my workplace comes at a premium, so I was glad to have the time this morning to organize the papers that had accumulated on my desk in peace and quiet.

I have really been enjoying the digital camera that I got for my birthday. It has been entertaining to take the camera with me everywhere I go. I find that when I have the camera, I tend to see the world with a different set of eyes. I look for color and interesting shapes, and things that would make neat photos. Digital photography was something that I resisted for the longest time, but as I walk around with that little camera, I don’t know why I was so opposed to it for such a long while. I am finding that it is great fun to work on my online flickr photo album, and sometimes when I am just too lazy to sit down and write a blog entry as they say, a picture can speak a thousand words.

School is feeling ominous and oppressive right now. I will be spending this evening in the engineering computer lab. There I will be able to complete my assignments and prepare for my upcoming exams. It looks like the WB Monday night will have to wait until I am done with school. Maybe Thursday or Friday!
